EducationGraduate of University of Redlands, May 2010, Major in Biology, chemistry minor.
Graduated top of class.
3.85 GPA with honors.
ExperienceI have tutored college undergraduate students and high school students for more than five years through the University of Redlands' in Chemistry, Biology, Math, and Physics and post-grad in Seattle. I also have experience tutoring high school chemistry and biology, and general study skills, and have helped many students earn A's. My past students are all so pleased that many have offered to provide personal recommendations in addition to the ones on the site if you would like.
I have experience with internships at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Bioscience working on genome science. I worked there for two summers during undergrad and did a post-bachelor's internship. My research there received an award for the best research completed by an intern in 2010.
After completing my internships I moved to Seattle to work as a biologist in a cancer research lab at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. There I studied abnormal microRNA levels and their contribution to cancer progression. This work was presented to the American Association for Cancer Research where it received an award for best poster and was submitted to be published at the end of February.
HobbiesI truly enjoy my subjects and teaching them to others. I just moved from Seattle where I worked at Fred Hutchinson in cancer research, so I used biochemistry everyday. I'm looking for a similar position in New York.

Whe I first started with Hilary I was really struggling with Chemistry and after our meetings it all started clicking into place. She is very good at explaining problems in terms that I understood and laying things out in a way that made actually made sense to me. She is patient, smart and good at making you feel comfortable with the material. When I started the sessions with Hilary I was not sure I would pass the class and in the end I came out much better than I had ever expected or hoped and was extremely pleased with my final grade. Hilary is truly great and I would recommened her to anyone having problems in chemistry.
Hilary helped me study for an Intro to Chemistry final. She appeared to be very comfortable and confident with the material she was teaching as well as easy to be around, laid back and encouraging. The tutoring sessions were well worth my time and money and I would ask for her help again.
